MAYOR GARCETTI. We the people of Los Angeles County TRUST science and believe in slowing down the curve during this COVID-19 pandemic. But what we do not trust is your deleterious, unproven protocols in place.

We are asking you to undo (at the very least) the policy to restrict "unnecessary walking." Walking outdoors, with a mask, with people in your household, six+ feet away from others serves minimal to no risk of contraction or passing of the virus. Dr. Fauci and researchers have shown these statistics time and time again. 

What will actually happen if you ban walking is negatively affect people's wellbeing, sanity, and psychological states. Walking increases lung capacity (which is extremely important when it comes to upper respiratory infections such as COVID-19), increases cardiovascular fitness, and manages chronic conditions, just to name a few physical benefits.

The psychological benefits are even more important during this stressful time. Walking improves mood and sleep quality, reduces stress and anxiety, combats fatigue, increases endorphins, and helps in the recovery of depression. We need to address the mental well being of our neighbors, especially those who are going through financial, familial, and physical difficulties at the moment. We need to undo this ridiculous, harmful policy (among the many others you have instated) to lessen the risk of suicide, depression, and anxiety.
